Brick City

Newark’s nickname is “Brick City” and, as residents explain in the five-part Sundance Channel documentary of the same name, you’ve got to be strong to survive these New Jersey streets.

Reviews

Lie to Me

That this is not another procedural show is in large part due to actor Tim Roth, who injects life and mystery into a part that on paper reads like a watered down version of Dr. Gregory House.

Reviews

Early Edition: The Second Season

Equal parts sweet and old-fashioned, the show’s regard for newspapers isn’t the only thing that feels of another era.

Music

Michael Jackson and the Mix

Creating a mix CD is different than listening to an album. Instead of listening to artists tell their stories, you use their music to tell one of your own.

Television

Good Morning Upper East Siders ...

It's 10 p.m. -- do you know where your teenager is? The parents of NYC Prep probably don't.

Television

Jon and Kate Plus Angst

Jon and Kate Plus Eight has never been more compelling -- but that's not necessarily a good thing.

From Zero to... Second Place? Idol's Kris Allen

Adam Lambert may have all the buzz, but there's just something about underdog Kris Allen.

Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase

Like a semester-long art history course stuffed inside a kaleidoscope.

Fauxject Runway

Bravo fails to capture 'Runway' magic with The Fashion Show.

California Dreams: Seasons 1 & 2

This DVD transformed me into a 12-year-old with sky-high mall bangs, watching ultra-glamorous teens who had their own ultra-hip garage band.

Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares: Complete UK Series 1

If some swearing and grief from Ramsay is all that stands between me and a case of food poisoning, I say yell away.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Vol. 6

When the narrator in the short intones that each episode is written by men with a third-grade education, I believe him.

A Hole In A Fence

The neighborhood’s future is unclear -- a fitting conclusion for a documentary that is more of a beginning than a fully-realized film.

Reviews

Bones: Season 3

It's creepy (some of the time), kooky (all of the time) and altogether ooky.

Reviews

The Mod Squad: The Second Season, Vol. 1

The Squad are hippies who decide that the Man had it right all along, and use their groovy powers to help him uphold the status quo.

One Tree Hill: The Complete Fifth Season

Alas, this should really be renamed "The Show that Wouldn't Die".

Reviews

The Hills: The Complete Third Season

These women make the same mistakes as millions of 20-somethings – watching them lets us relive the gaffes without the consequences.

Our House

Having gay parents makes them different from other kids -- but probably not as different as critics think.

My Boys: The Complete First Season

Not ground-breaking television by any stretch of the imagination, but breezy and pleasant.

The women struggle to stay above water when apart. But this show really drowns when they are together.
